JLPT Countdown!

The annual Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) is just a month away, and it’s time to get serious about studying for it. I’ve been pretty busy of late, so I haven’t studied as much as I’d hoped to these past few weeks. Feelings of dread.

To be honest, I’m not feeling very confident, but one month is a nice big round number, and it should be enough time to learn all that I need. I’m reassured by the fact the pass mark is 60%, but pass or fail, it doesn’t concern me too much. The point is to study and improve my Japanese. A pass would be nice though:Japanese

Update: December 5. Well the test is less than 12 hours away and oops, I have been much busier with work and my MBA than I expected. As a result, I’m not as prepared for the test as I would have liked. I’m still looking forward to the test though as I’m looking at it as a chance to gain some JLPT test taking experience. Just registering for the test has resulted in me doing more study than I would otherwise have done, and that’s a positive. If I don’t pass this time, that’s OK. I’ll definitely pass it next time.  It’s now 10:39 p.m., time for some final Kanji and grammar review, and then it’s off to bed. Wish me luck!

Update 2: I failed.
